Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's honeymoon could include a romantic stopover in another African country

Chris Jackson / GettyMeghan Markle and Prince Harry might honeymoon in Namibia — and Botswana.
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will honeymoon in Namibia, reportedly.
  • But the royal couple’s honeymoon could include another African country: Botswana.
  • Botswana is meaningful to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – they celebrated Markle’s birthday there, and the center stone of her engagement ring is also from Botswana.

It’s been reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will honeymoon in Namibia – a country that offers incredible views and ultimate privacy.

The best time of year to visit Namibia is in May, according to Marisa Lassman, a travel expert and founder of Another Africa, a luxury travel agency that specialises in unique and tailored trips across the continent. But Lassman said the royal couple’s honeymoon may also include one of their past vacation spots.

“A trip to this part of the world should always begin with Namibia and end in Botswana,” Lassman said.

“Whilst Namibia is scenically astonishing, the level of camps and lodges cannot compete with the quality of what you’d find in Botswana. Far better to end the trip on a real high!”

Not only is Botswana a favourite of Lassman’s, it’s also a favourite of Markle’s and Prince Harry’s, as the two have vacationed there together in the past, including a trip there for Markle’s 36th birthday. While there, they visited UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Okavango Delta, and have noted that the trip truly cemented their relationship.

Markle’s engagement ring is also from Botswana – with a center cushion-cut diamond that’s estimated to be five carats, and sourced by Prince Harry himself.

If the couple does end up making a pit-stop in Botswana, Lassman suggests the two stay three nights at the Zarafa Dhow Suites, and three nights at Little Mombo.

Wherever the couple decides, it’s sure to be romantic.
